Forecast: Sunshine and a modest warm-up
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The chilly air that brought the abrupt end to our midweek heat wave won't have much staying power. High temperatures bottomed out yesterday, when they were held to the upper 50s. Today, we start to warm back up with temperatures climbing into the 60s. And on Sunday, we're back into the 70s. Sunshine all weekend long will delight outdoor enthusiasts and it looks to hang on into early next week though temperatures will cool back down a bit.
Today (Saturday): We'll awaken to some pretty chilly air with many suburban areas in the mid-to-high 30s. But after the sun goes to work, we'll reach the low-to-mid 60s in the afternoon -- not quite warm enough to merit a "nice day sun." It will be a little breezy, with a wind from the west at 10-15 mph, but nothing like yesterday when winds gusted up to 40 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: Clear skies and calm winds will make for a second straight chilly night, although I don't think we'll see as many 30s as the night before. Lows should range from around 40 in the cooler suburbs to the upper 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): The spectacular spring of 2010 is going to deliver another picture perfect day. We'll have lots of sunshine and with a light southwest wind we should head up into the low-and-mid 70s. Expect the golf courses (the final round of the Masters notwithstanding) and parks to be crowded. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: We'll have some clouds move in from the overnight as a weak cold front slides through the region from the northwest. Rain is not anticipated as the front won't have much moisture to work with. Lows will range from 45-50 (suburbs-city). Confidence: High
Cool high pressure builds into the region for Monday and Tuesday in the wake of Sunday night's cold front. So temperatures both days will drop 5-10 degrees relative to Sunday with highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. Overnight lows will be chilly, dipping into the low 40s (with some 30s in the colder suburbs). Confidence: Medium-High
